Experiences Only Latinos Have Growing Up

Sabado Gigante


“Hey, what are you doing Saturday?”

“You mean this Saturday, or every single Saturday for the rest of my life?”

It’s gigantic. It’s Saturday. It happens to be the longest running show in Univision’s history and the longest running variety show in television history. Because it’s not just a show. It’s a religious ceremony. Don Francisco is the captain of the ship, although his birth name is the out-of-place sounding Mario Luis Kreutzberger Blumenfeld. A crazier mix of contests and entertainment and sob stories has never graced television screens. You’ve screamed when Teleton USA airs each year, although having Don Francisco on TV is some comfort.
